To understand the CO₂ shortage, we need to look at fertiliser production – and why it has stalled in the UK.
A large amount of methane emissions come from natural gas infrastructure and landfills – all problems companies know how to fix.
The shipping sector’s emissions are equivalent to some industrial countries: here’s some innovative ways to help reduce them.
The way we use fossil fuels is wasteful and inefficient. A world based on renewable energy would need half as much as we produce now.
The world is moving away fossil fuels, and there’s nothing Australia can do about it. Racing to dig up and sell whatever fossil fuels we can before the timer stops is not a future-proof strategy.
Our new study reveals how tight the world’s remaining carbon budget is.
The world recently celebrated the end of leaded petrol, as sales ceased in Algeria.
New research shows how fracking could pose a threat to surface water quality, with consequences for human and environmental health.
Major coal generators say the proposal will help shore up energy supplies. But opponents say it will pay coal plants for simply existing and delay the clean energy transition.
Biogas is often overlooked as a source of renewable energy, but it could be a solution to dealing with the 9.5 million tonnes of food waste created by the UK every year.
The infrastructure bill being debated in Congress looks like a small but genuine down payment on a more climate-friendly transportation sector and electric power grid. What comes next is crucial.
BHP is banking profits from its failing assets, while washing its hands of the responsibility for its past and ongoing contribution to climate change.
Hydrogen fuel derived from natural gas may be worse for the climate than the fossil fuel even with carbon capture and storage.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has released its long-awaited report. From accelerating emissions to intensifying disasters to rising sea levels, its authors lay out the new findings.
Colonialism, political turmoil and unmet citizen promises all lie behind the rise of attacks on foreign-run fossil fuel plants in Mozambique.
The fact that nearly half the world’s population is still struggling to escape poverty while global temperatures hurtle upward is not a coincidence.
When big investors like Blackrock get worried about their returns, they have the power and incentive to make fossil fuel companies take action.
Keeping global warming under 1.5℃ is still achievable with rapid deployment of renewables. A new report found solar and wind can supply the world’s energy demand more than 50 times over.
Abandoned US oil and gas wells and their associated land cover more than 2 million acres, a recent study estimates – an area larger than Delaware and Rhode Island combined.
Photos from the early 1900s show LA’s forests of oil derricks. Hundreds of wells are still pumping, and new research finds people living nearby are struggling with breathing problems.
